The physical and mental health benefits of a good walk are well documented, and many creative people claim they get their inspiration whilst striding out. Mallorca is the perfect island for walking and hiking, offering a variety of terrains to suit different levels of fitness, and a favourable climate. The north and northwest – taking in the Serra de Tramuntana and its Dry Stone Route (GR 221) or ‘Ruta de Pedra en Sec’ – offer great hiking possibilities, and several books, maps, and Internet sites can guide you on the right path.
Guided hikes offer the benefit of meeting like-minded people and making new friends, as well as enabling you to discover unfamiliar routes. If you’re not experienced, it’s a good idea to start mountain hiking with others who know the mountains well. Away from the mountains, there are plenty of places to hike, including the new ‘Via Verde’ eco-path between Manacor and Artà, which offers an easier terrain for less adventurous (or fit) hikers. Good hiking boots or shoes are a must and Bestard, which has an outlet at Mallorca Fashion Outlets, makes some of the best.
